. you're in orlando right now. if you believe the polls this race is absolutely razor tight. what are you hearing from inside the romney camp how they are feeling about the possibility of victory in this race? >> reporter: optimism, confidence but they recognize there's still a great deal of work to do and what we're seeing today on this final day of campaigning really sort of explains the entire dynamic for the last 18 months for the romney campaign. we start the day with florida. here he is on the stage. the backbone of any republican winning strategy. next after ohio we'll have two stops in virginia. take-back state for mr. obama who won that in '08. a traditional republican leaning one and uber-state of ohio, romney if he wins there could well end up in the white us who. he will wrap up tonight in manchester, new hampshire wherer won the first primary. a key battleground state that could end up close to a tie. romney insiders anywhere there might be a photo finish could be in ohio, excuse me, new hampshire or perhaps ohio. romney will possibly even campaign tomorrow in ohio to
% to 47% among likely voters. a look at other national polls confirm it's razor tight, maybe even a mirror image of the 2004 showdown between president bush and senator john kerry. we see some movement towards the president. obama leads by seven points, almost four in ten. and he leads by four points in the battleground states, again, though, within the margin of error. the president is holding on to an eight-point advantage among women and that's slightly higher than romney's edge among men. the president's job rating sits at 49%. take a look at these numbers. 67% of likely voters approve of his handling of hurricane sandy. haven't seen numbers like that for this president on a single event, of course, going back to bin laden. and we may be seeing a sandy effect in other numbers. when voters are asked which candidate has better leadership qualities, the president -- more now pick the president. two weeks ago mitt romney led in that question, 44% to 40%. this doesn't mean romney doesn't have some things going for him. he's winning independents, the group the president won in 2008. romney l
including colorado where the race remains razor tight. it's a state that i am from, so i know something about the politics there. take a look. out there in the rocky mountain west, colorado is a pivotal state. if you take a look at some of the economic numbers, the unemployment rate in colorado right now stands at 8%, slightly above the national average. gas prices, $3.54 a gallon. foreclosures, one in every 572 housing units in foreclosure. president obama has made ten visits there since april, mitt romney nine visits, and both candidates are going back there once again. in terms of the electoral votes, nine up for grabs in colorado, and both candidates want them. who's ahead in colorado depends on which poll you look at. the real clear politics polling average shows that the two candidates essentially are tied. president obama less than one point ahead in this average of all the polls. allison sherry is a war correspondent for the denver post and is in colorado -- oh, look at the rockies behind you, it looks gorgeous. allison, on the east coast we are dealing with this monstrous storm
everything in a razor tight race. the government reports america's unemployment rate rising in the month of october to 7.9%. 171,000 jobs added last month. that is far fewer than the 250,000 many economists say are needed each month to turn the economy around. so that is the big number we have. that's where we start. good morning. i'm bill hemmer. welcome here. morning, martha. martha: good morning bill. what a week. it is friday. welcome everybody, i'm martha maccallum. this jobs report today could be the freshest things people have in their mind in terms of a economic number when they head to the polls in a few days. this short shows it has been a very slow, sluggish recovery. the government reports real unemployment, this is the number we want to focus on, 14.6%. we say that for a good reason. that includes people that are underemployed, even people only worked one day, get counted in the underemployed, part time emed employed. some just have given up. bill: stuart varney, anchor fox business network. good morning to you. start with the more significant number you find there. what is
coming out of ohio, 49-49, razor tight and this was before the final debate. take a moment here to take us through how each side thinks they win the state. >> you know, the joke is there are five -- it's five states within one state. the five ohios. but let me just take you through basically the romney pattern here which is run up the score in coal country. that's what bush did in '04, and win the swing areas of columbus media market, an '04 bush territory. was '08 obama. and win hamilton county. for the president, run up the score in cleveland, cuyahoga county and overperform with working class white guys in the auto belt, if you will, the toledo area, but if you're looking at just one county that may tell us more than anything, david, you sit over here and we're going to take you to hamilton county. look at this. it's as easy of a swing county as it is, bush carried it in '04 by 22,000 votes. obama carried it by 30,000 votes there. it's why mitt romney spent a lot of time in cincinnati this week. >> as hamilton county goes, perhaps ohio goes, so let's turn now to the governor of battl

there. it was razor tight in the past. democrats won by .3 of the overall vote. the president is now up to 65 versus 263. what puts the president in 269? new hampshire. governor romney would have to win the only state left in our scenario on the map, and that is electoral votes in the state of iowa. that is how you get to 69 up to 269. based on the information on polling and polling data that we have, this is possible. martha: there have been folks who have been talking about the scenario for a couple of months. it could be possible. what happens then? if it is to 69 and 269, funky stuff goes on. it was the house of representatives. whoever has the majority coming on the president. whoever has the majority in the senate within vote on the vice president. how about a romney and biden ticket. after all of this?
